Community Care Access Centre
In 1996, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care established CCACs to provide a first point of contact for public access to government-funded home care, community services and long-term care homes. At that time, 43 CCACs were established in communities across the province.
In 2007, these 43 offices were aligned with the 14 LHINs (Local Health Integration Networks). There are now 14 CCACs operating in every community across Ontario. A single CCAC can have a head office with multiple branch offices as well as a presence in hospitals and other health-care settings.
Below is a list of local CCAC's and a map showing the areas they cover,
